Luke 6:39-42 Reflection ~
Today, I am going to work hard to resist my quest for power, to compare myself to others or desire anything. Instead, I will strive to listen, to see joy where there seems to be none, to look interiorly and consciously move to be last in line. Perhaps in this on-going surrender, I will see the unrecognized flaws in myself. As I allow myself to become weaker, I know Christ will mend what is flawed, fill me with kindness, peace, love, and understanding so in Him I may serve in worthiness.
Luke 6 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
39 He also told them a parable: “Can a blind person guide a blind person? Will not both fall into a pit? 40 A disciple is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully qualified will be like the teacher. 41 Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? 42 Or how can you say to your neighbor, ‘Friend, let me take out the speck in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor’s eye.
Thank you for meditating on this Gospel reading and considering this reflection on Luke 6:39-42
